Just as Nuna Parr’s name has become synonymous with exquisite Dancing Bears, Tim Pee has become identified as the master carver of the sleek, Striding bear.
This particular Diving bear, is one of Pee’s finest works.
The acrobatic pose on the left front paw, is astounding! How can this “bottom heavy” creature stand in a handstand position on one paw with his hind legs apart in true olympic gymnast fashion? With one glance, the observer immediately recognizes Pee’s genius in rendering this complex carving.
The exquisite black stone with its mirror finish is divine. This Tim Pee bear is obviously carved by a person who loves and respects the essence of the bear. The proportions of Diving bear are in synch with the energy flowing from the sculpture. Despite the large sized heavy stone, the work has a lightness of spirit and grace. This is Tim Pee’s trademark. His bears are quietly graceful, refined and peaceful. The observer feels calm and serene gazing at this mesmerizing creature.
Tim’s flawless accuracy, acute lines and atomic proportions elevate his talent to an order higher than most carvers of Bears.
This Diving bear deserves a place of honour in your home or business. This is a “show off” piece that will capture the heart of anyone who sees it!
The piece is signed on the bottom by Tim Pee and comes with the Igloo Tag of Authenticity.
